Outreach in Action

Education beyond high school is vital to all Alaskans. It provides increased career opportunities, higher reported life and job satisfaction, and higher wages.

ACPE's programs promote access to and success in education and career training beyond high school for all Alaskans. Outreach and early awareness initiatives are designed to ensure Alaska's youth, their parents, and their mentors have the necessary tools and resources to prepare for and achieve an education that will increase the quality of life for all Alaskans.PDF of 2011-2012 Communities Where We Work
